If you have been feeling lonely, sad or anxious, we can share a safe space where you can tell me your concerns. The main purpose of therapy is generating deep awareness of one's own personality and behaviour, understand about your inner world (thoughts, emotions, feelings), inquiring how our past affects our present. With this understanding one can move onto learning skills in order to manage emotions and behaviour. The therapeutic approach I use depends on the client's needs and resources available, with a strong foundation on a trauma-informed approach.

A few therapy appointments with me can help to get you through a specific situation such as a traumatic loss, injury, relationship crisis or a major decision. We can also transform deeper problems, such as mood issues, unresolved trauma, or school, work, family stress with longer term work together. I recognize you are investing in therapy and the intention is that we quickly identify the difficulties you bring and give you strategies to improve your life. Many people value the relationship we build and come back for top-ups of support when needed, either face to face or online.

I am passionate about helping people break through barriers that are commonly imposed by the dominant culture while finding ways to work more comfortably both inside and outside ‘the box’ to achieve goals. I've worked with clients in settings ranging from prison to university, and you can count on my acceptance ‘as you are’ without judgment while helping you recognize and recover your own strengths. I bring expertise to support you with a wide variety of concerns, and I have particularly enjoyed working with clients whose lived experience includes neurodiversity, gender diversity, and relationship diversity.

Having been trained not only as a psychotherapist but also as a Yoga psychology teacher, I believe that the events we have been through are part of our soul's journey towards wholeness. By learning from our experiences and transcending our suffering, we become more conscious, awaken our inner light, find our purpose, and discover our qualities and gifts. My approach combines the sciences behind Western psychologies (psychodynamic, transpersonal, etc.) with the wisdom behind Eastern traditions/ philosophies (Yoga psychology, mindfulness, etc). If that resonates with you, I am happy to assist you on your journey.

I believe that addiction is a primary disease and that a person's other issues will stem from this fundamental problem. Therefore it's important to treat the addiction first. People with addiction often use alcohol and other drugs or behaviours to 'cope'. In the beginning the substance or the behaviour (such as sex addiction) was the 'solution', but after a while it became the problem. My approach is to offer therapy that is focused on a new, results-focused solution. The goal is offering my clients 'tools' so that they can change behaviour that is causing problems in their lives.
